“Let them eat bugs!” – UN Report Suggests Poor People Eat Grasshoppers – Protein Bars in Snowpiercer? Grasshoppers
by Scott Creighton
Global warming is having all kinds of interesting side effects, isn’t it? Feed the proletariat protein bars. That’s the latest out of a UN study. After all, we can’t expect EVERYONE gets steak. To much cow farting for that and there’s always that “global warming” to think about. So let’s give them “protein bars” instead:
What is nutritious, delicious, and has six legs? If we could collectively get over our disgust at the six legged critters, insects could become a staple of the human diet, along with fish, and other kinds of meat, a new UN report argues.
The Food and Agriculture organisation FAO hailed members of the insect world as an under-utilised resource, in the report which was released this Monday. By 2050, world population is slated to reach 9 billion, arable land is shrinking due to climate change, and oceans are increasingly overfished. Incorporating bugs into our diet could alleviate some of those problems, the report argues…
… “Food we are currently consuming is artificially cheap. Negative environmental externalities aren’t factored into food prices, and farm subsidies artificially lower prices. We are facing a crisis; if the price of meat was increased to reflect its true costs, people would be forced to consider alternative options.”, says Afton Halloran, one of the paper’s coauthors, a UCPH alumnus to the University Post…
For one thing, as insects are cold-blooded, they are efficient in converting feed into food, according to the report. On average, grasshoppers require 12 times less feed to produce a kilogram of edible mass than cattle. They also produce fewer greenhouse gasses…University Post
All we have to do is “collectively” get over the notion that the rich are going to be feeding bugs to poor people while they dine on steak. Just get over that and everything will neat-o-keen.
Oh wait, you haven’t heard the best part…
… and (bugs) can be fed on organic waste streams. University Post
That’s right. Your shit. Pump your raw sewage straight to the industrial bug farms and watch the profits grow as the poor literally eat their own excrement.
Still think Snowpiercer was fiction?

File this in the “you have got to be kidding” folder.
CIAnonymous, in their ongoing quest to fan the flames of the sputtering color revolution (colored revolution?) here in the states, produced a rap video back in late Oct. of this year, just ahead of the current discord that’s being stoked right now.
In what appears to be an attempt to seduce the young, inexperienced “truthers”, the video is replete with references to “conspiracies”, “Illuminati”, “false flags” and of course, “9/11″.
The ridiculously cliched video features some obviously white Harvard and Yale Ivy League graduates wearing black hoodies and Guy Fawkes masks slo-mo strutting trying to look “gangsta” while the chorus sings “Illuminati, you will never take control”
The video comes from CIAnonymous’ official Youtube page. The comment section is literally full of various types of honeypot entrapment opportunities for law enforcement which, not surprisingly, haven’t been removed in spite of the fact that at least one of them makes a death threat against the President of the United States. Hmmm… I wonder how that works…
Protests against new EU Central Bank in Germany – police there do what they do everywhere to protect the masters of the universe.
President Peace Prize kills 6 more in Pakistan – 500th drone strike on countries outside scope of war – “A US drone destroyed a house in Mada Khel village of North Waziristan today, killing six people and wounding three others. None of the slain were identified, but all were labeled “suspects.”
US Army School of the Americas gets reboot – 4 billion to train terrorists across the globe – “This full re-boot of the School of the Americas’ model deploys troops globally on “training” missions and, increasingly, US Special Forces work in concert with the post-Clinton State Department and its Conflict Bureau to establish forward operating bases in a new system of pro-US client states under the rubric of the War on Terror, and, if approved, it will be partially paid for by President Obama’s recently-proposed Counterterrorism Partnership Fund (CTPF).”
Almost no one admits to seeing fake beheading videos – sloppy propagandists laugh – “Only 9 percent of those surveyed by HuffPost/YouGov said they had watched one of the videos..”
Joe Biden and our puppet dictator in Ukraine met by angry mob in the west of the country – “When Biden’s motorcade arrived on outskirts of what had become very large and somewhat unruly gathering, many chanting ‘shame’ at Poroshenko. … [U.S.] [S]ecret [S]ervice decided wasn’t a good idea for Biden to wade in”
U.S. backed junta in Thailand says martial law will remain for some time as people protest illegal junta – “Thailand’s Justice Minister Paiboon Koomchaya has said martial law will remain in place “indefinitely”, amid mounting protests of military rule.”

I don’t know who Shanesha Taylor is. Supposedly she left her kids in the car when she went on a job interview because she was homeless. The interwebs got a hold of her story and people tried to help her out raising 114k to get her and more importantly, her kids, back on their feet again. Supposedly some activists set her up with job interviews as well, certainly a shoe-in for the position had she shown up, which she didn’t. She blew the money and failed to even put 40k into the trust fund for her kids the courts demanded that she create instead of going to jail.
Tim Black gives his opinion of the developments. He was one of the internet activists who championed her cause initially in good faith. He has a right to be pissed off. And he is.
I like this guy. Kind of reminds me of the old Keith Olbermann before he got fired and sold out.
Agent Provocateurs are All Over the Ferguson Grand Jury Psyop – No Supporting Evidence for “Bomb Making” Story
by Scott Creighton
Reports are out that the Grand Jury deliberating the case against Darren Wilson has come to a decision as to whether or not the officer should be indicted for his Aug. 9th shooting of unarmed Michael Brown but they are going to withhold the announcement of that decision until Sunday. The reason for the delay has not been made clear and officials refuse to say whether or not the Grand Jury is still meeting.
A grand jury decision on whether to charge Officer Darren Wilson with the shooting of Michael Brown is expected to come within the next few days, but as of early Saturday, it remained unclear whether the panel was still at work or when the outcome would be announced. USA Today
If a decision comes Friday, prosecutors are expected to provide law enforcement with 48 hours notice before making a public announcement, possibly on Sunday. CNN
The official reasoning behind this delay is that the prosecutor’s office is giving law enforcement as much time as possible so they can prepare for the backlash from protesters.
I wonder if that is really the case.
The main groups of legitimate protesters have already said they have no plans to invoke violence in Ferguson or anywhere else for that matter. They’ve sat down with law enforcement officials and come to terms on certain “rules” for their protests regardless of the outcome of the Grand Jury decision. In fact, many of the legitimate protesters who were out there 3 months ago protesting the shooting, are going to sit this one out.
So what are they waiting for? They have an agreement with the responsible factions of the protesters to keep it civil and a much smaller turnout thus far in the streets of Ferguson. Why wait?
Well, the answer may be they are waiting BECAUSE they have a smaller turnout and BECAUSE they are expecting less violence and unrest. They need time to allow the Justice Department and Homeland Security time to stoke the fires and put their various agent provocateurs in place.

…Under the Obama plan, the majority of workers who have entered the country without legal documents will still be treated as criminals, to be expelled from the country as soon as they are discovered. The four million to five million covered by the executive order will become a federally regimented cheap labor force…
UPDATE: Obama “asked whether we as a nation shouldn’t “tolerate the hypocrisy of a system where workers who pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to get right with the law?” Raw Story
Obama’s reboot of Bush’s Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007 is only PART of the Kafkaesque picture
The globalists are salivating. They are poised to make a huge grab for that brass ring that only undemocratic, executive action can provide. The kind that unelected unaccountable technocrats in places like Greece, Ukraine and Detroit can make. And these guys are doing it right here in the states before our very eyes.
But don’t worry, the globalist guy who brought us the nightmare of NAFTA and brought Haiti the nightmare of neoliberalism says it’s unavoidable and legal and in 20 years or so, even the peasants will approve.
(Bill) Clinton sought to frame the debate in a larger context, saying Americans should be optimistic about the nation’s future. He said the next two decades could be positive for the country if the U.S. can develop inclusive economics and inclusive politics (pro-Business globalization).
“In a world where borders look more like nets than walls, we are interdependent whether we like it or not, so the only thing that remains is to define the terms of our interdependence,” he said. AP
Of course, that’s not exactly the case. Neoliberal Globalization is often referred to as a given by the globalists and their sycophantic minions. Something that is inevitable and unavoidable.
Interdependency is not a prerequisite for a nation’s success or it’s people’s prosperity these days. Libya was a gem prior to Barack Obama and Bill Clinton’s wife bombing them into the fold. Now look at them. Ukraine had it’s gold reserves stolen which sent them into instant poverty on the world stage and now the technocrats we put in power are busy installing the mandated austerity measures on the people.
